"Roy likes the idea and is up for it. It's being discussed. Roy will only agree if the match takes place under the rules of boxing, and UFC would have to clear Silva's participation."
Alan Hopper, director of public relations for Don King Productions, confirms "preliminary" talks to match up UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva and boxing champion Roy Jones Jr. It would be under boxing rules and it would be at a catchweight somewhere between 185 and 170 pounds. Would UFC President Dana White green light this spectacle? I tend to think not, personally.
